Race Report: 10 year old Takes on Beginner Women

19 Flares 19 Flares ×

A race report from a fellow Twin Six racer. Madison is a 10 year old chica killing it in the beginner class down in Florida. Learn more about her adventures at mtbracergirl.blogspot.com 

OK..here I was,  Little 66 lb/10 year old me about ready to race these women.  And I’m thinking…what the heck did I get myself into??  Then, the nerves started to settle in, my stomach was a mess, and I just wanted the whole thing to be over with already.

There was a total of 8 beginner women.  I was 6th going into the woods (not good, but better than last).  During the first 7 mile lap, racers #1 and #2 crashed, so I was able to past them and move up to the 4th position.  Feeling awesome and moving along at a good pace, I came across a difficult a climb.  I got off the bike and ran up the hill and ended up passing #3 racer. Then, I came across #2 racer and was able to pass her as she was pushing her bike up a hill. This was too good to be true. I was in second place and kept my position for the rest of the lap and throughout the entire 2nd lap.

  1. Nice work! My 6 year old is an aspiring racer and he enjoyed your post. He has his first cx race this weekend.

  2. Inspiring, our biggest growth area in our youth race series in the DC area is the 10 and under race class and its some of the most competitive.
